I doubt it but I couldn’t help but notice the difference in the coverage between Irma and Maria.  During Irma, Mike Bettis and Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams were all braving, in at least one instance stupidly, the elements to bring us coverage of the effects in communities with a lot of rich white people.  Then along comes Maria and they send black meteorologist Paul Goodloe to brown Puerto Rico.  Now before you get all bent out of shape, I think he’s done an excellent job and demonstrated he’s brighter than his white counterparts because he didn’t stupidly stand out in 140 mph winds but covered from inside.  Meanwhile, Stephanie Abrams braved 20 mph winds to bring us coverage of Jose on some Massachusetts beach, and I haven’t seen Bettis or Cantore anywhere.  Maybe they’re camped out somewhere hoping that Maria will hit somewhere on the East Coast
